Small Town

I see you small town... I am here for you young child. The world is so much bigger than your dirt road.. there are others like you you'll get to know.

I see you small town... kinfolk rapers and molesters love you so. Mothers and aunts fondled with by brothers and uncles seems apart of the family tree to thee. Desperate to speak out but grandmas rug always seem to be sweeping around me.

I see you small town... the nicotine, drugs and liquor weighing your family down. Teach me nothing but cornbread and collard greens. I feel so close to you shucking these field peas.

I see you small town... young mothers who know nothing but to feel held down... by their mistakes because you are a mistake and is keeping her from moving around.

I see you small town... the anger and pain inside of me. Don't you tell anyone what goes on in this house because ignorance is key. Learning from the things you see on tv. Disney is the only love you ever knew so when you grow older you face failed relationships blinded by the fact that fairytale love isn't true.

I see you small town...
I once knew you small town...
Tarquinius Green
